Borderlands DLC Gets The Retail Treatment In The UK

In yo' face!

Not everyone’s a fan of digital downloads. Some people, like myself, feel a tad safer physically owning their purchased items because it’s located in a safe location of their choosing – preferably on a DVD shelf. The whole idea of having DLC digitally stored on your local hard drive is great as it omits the idea of having to insert a disc, which makes our lazy lives much simpler having everything at the touch of a button, literally. But a lot of us just love the smell of newly opened cases and the intoxicating scent of Blu-ray/DVD plastic discs. Gearbox Studios understands the obsession with the aforementioned details above and has decided to release their successful 2009 shooter’s – Borderlands – downloadable content into one package which will be released for retail shelves. Mmm… more plastic…

Borderlands has had three downloadable pieces of content so far: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned and the Secret Armory of General Knoxx.

The retail version of the DLC will be available in the UK next month on both the 360 and PC with an unknown price tag (as price hasn’t been announced yet). If you’re skimming through this post looking for the words “North America” and “PS3,” you won’t find it. There hasn’t been any confirmation that the retail box will be hitting our shores or Sony’s PlayStation 3 at this time. Now, please feel free to go in a blind rage.
